Dell UltraSharp 3007WFP 30in flat-panel display

£1,279 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Dell

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

Dell's UltraSharp 3007WFP 30in widescreen flat-panel monitor turned in strong scores in the text portion of our image quality tests.

Dell's UltraSharp 3007WFP 30in widescreen flat-panel monitor turned in strong scores in the text portion of our image quality tests. True to the UltraSharp 3007WFP's name, text in a Microsoft Word document was indeed sharp. Text in a screen of multi-sized fonts was crisp and easy to read, even at small font sizes.

The Dell UltraSharp 3007WFP didn't perform quite as well as some other displays when rendering colour, although the UltraSharp 3007WFP flat-panel did represent colours nicely overall.

While colours the UltraSharp 3007WFP produced in a screen of a website looked bright and accurate, some photos appeared slightly dark, with muted shades. The effect was not really distracting - just enough to be barely visible.

The Dell UltraSharp 3007WFP has easily accessible media slots and USB ports, a four-in-one media card reader, a separate CF slot, and two USB ports reside on the left side of the display. Two more USB ports are situated on the back of the UltraSharp 3007WFP.

The only controls the Dell UltraSharp 3007WFP includes are those for brightness - touch-sensitive buttons on the front let you turn brightness up or down.

The Dell UltraSharp 3007WFP lacks other controls because there are no on-screen components to support the UltraSharp 3007WFP's high resolution of 2,560x1,600.

Dell says that future versions of the UltraSharp 3007WFP will include an OSD.

The Dell UltraSharp 3007WFP has a smooth black bezel and a V-shaped silver stand. It tilts and swivels smoothly, though it does not pivot. It is height-adjustable and wall-mountable.

With a £1,000+ price tag, the Dell UltraSharp 3007WFP is certainly not cheap, although it does cost in the same range as other 30in LCD flat-panel displays. But if you're looking for a big display on which to spread out a few open windows, then the 3007WFP could be a good investment.

It's not cheap and we would like to see more onscreen controls, but the Dell UltraSharp 3007WFP 30in widescreen flat-panel monitor certainly turned in some strong scores in our Test Centre.

    The Samsung SyncMaster 305T is a 30in display that has first-rate image quality overall, although colours looked slightly dull in some photos.

    Belinea 2230 S1W 22in flat-panel monitor

    It's pretty hard to make a display stand out from the crowd, and Belinea's 2230 S1W is no exception to this rule. The Belinea 2230 S1W measures a fashionable 22in, which has the benefit of allowing it to offer a higher native resolution (1,680x1,050) than 19in and 20in screens. But there's nothing much here that sets the Belinea 2230 S1W apart from the competition.

    Desirable extras can't make up for the pricey Dell UltraSharp 2007WFP's sluggish performance.

    The Dell UltraSharp 2408WFP is a well-designed, fully adjustable 24in monitor whose ports and features comfortably justify its price.

    Dell ST2310

    Following in the footsteps of such practical, moderately priced widescreen LCDs from Dell as the E228WFP, the Ultrasharp 1908WFP, and the G2210, the Dell ST2310 is a solid display that performs well. It's not splashy or feature-rich, but it does deliver nice image quality.
